Not your everyday B&B. More like a Swiss Chalet with exceptional hosts. Quiet retreat for tired legs after a long day enjoying the beauty of Vermont. The rooms were well appointed and the king bed was exceptionally comfortable. The fresh baked cookies were a real treat. The bathroom was very spacious and the Jacuzzi tub was just what we needed after a long day on the slopes. We will be back for sure.
Have been going annually to the Stone Hill Now for 8 years and love it every time. Exceptional staff, very helpful with every detail, rooms are gorgeous. Love the in wall fireplace between the room/bathroom. Close to the mountain for skiing or the town for delicious meals and shopping. We feel like we are visiting old friends each year and love it every time.
